      At this very early date in hominid history, there is no evidence for
      structures. The food preparation site at Gona would have beenoutdoors
      next to a water source."The site appears to be near a river bank and
      it seems to have been favored by our ancestors because of the
      abundant stone raw material available as sources for making the stone
      tools, and the nearby ancient streams for fresh drinking water, and
      trees for shade and probably refuge from predators," Semaw said. The
      objects were excavated in a hillside covered with extensive volcanic
      matter that dates to 2.52 million years ago. They remained sealed,
      like a time capsule, with no signs of transport by water.
